NAIA races, on both the Men’s and Women’s side are starting to take shape. We are seeing several teams starting to separate themselves from the pack. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t still big games across leagues. As we try to remind everyone that each league tournament is set up different. Some leagues invite everyone, others only take the top teams to the conference tournament. This means that every night between now and tournament time, you will see teams in the middle or bottom of the league, playing with a lot of heart and energy. These teams are basically already playing playoff type games as they fight for a spot in their conference tournaments. We will have some of these type games highlighted as we continue to move closer to playoff time!
